Brutus is not an honorable man. Brutus was a very selfish and self-centered person. He continually ignored Cassius’ and the conspirators’ ideas. He was the leader and everyone was supposed to go along with them. Not to mention that all of his decisions went against Cassius and they were all the wrong moves.
Antigone's tragic flaw was amplified by her loyalty for her brother; she acted irrational, in not taking preparation or thoroughness into consideration when burying her brother. Further more when confronted by Creon, himself she disrespected and basically told him to silence himself because his words were "distasteful" to her. So then sealing her death by becoming an immediate martyr for the wrong cause... anything against Creon's will. Creon, in his paranoia was plagued with the feeling of incompetence and need to establish dominance. His decree that no one would bury Polyneices only provoked the people of Thebes into thinking of him as insensitive to their culture.
His inaction once again proving fatal for himself and others. When he gets angry with Ophelia for lying to him, the things he says to her because of his anger are one of the reasons she loses her mind, which leads to her death. He denies even giving her anything. He says to her “No, not I. I never gave you aught” (Shakespeare, 3.1.98). Then he tells her that he didn’t even love her, saying “I loved you not” (Shakespeare, 3.1.120).
Understanding Iago's Hatred Towards Othello a) Iago hates Othello because he made a young Cassio his second-in-command. Iago feels greatly aggrieved that he was overlooked for promotion by the moor and instead Cassio was promoted to Lieutenant. Othello had fought in battles with Iago, thus he feels betrayed that he was not promoted by his comrade. Iago actually said about the reasons for his hatred in part “g” (p55 line 426-447). Those reason are rational enough for his hatred, but they are not rational for his acts what he did after.
The play Othello was littered with accusations and errors of many people. Some hurt one another for self benefit, some did for revenge, but some others were just plain stupid. Nobody stuck up for themselves as normal human beings should do in times of need, instead just sitting and taking it, letting the antagonist win the battles and eventually the war. All of this is true, but the primary example of stupidity in this book is the main character, Othello. Othello is hands down the dumbest character in the book, clearly not having the ability to use his head and get his facts straight in any shape or form.
The egotistical, arrogant Julius Caesar is seen to be showing great ignorance which caused his downfall in the form of betrayal. His character innately makes him weak because even though he suspected Cassius at the beginning, he did not take action upon his own suspicion. He also had many people telling him to beware the Ides of March, and to be careful of certain people. He did not listen to any of these warnings even though he had his own suspicion about one person who after all thought of the plan to kill Julius. If he was sensible and not ignorant, he would think that there would be people out there who would want to take him out.
Odysseus is not a hero because, he is foolish, lacks faithfulness and is consumed by his Hubris and selfishness. Although he may be considered a war hero, Odysseus is not a hero in other respects. This is so because he is self-centered which is clear because he doesn't value other people's lives. He also is foolish risking the lives of his crew members for unnecessary reasons. He also outright disrespects the Gods at more than one point in the epic.
However, it was due to his lack of moral purpose that Rodya berates his sister’s fiancé. He is unable to control himself, and due to his immoral act of getting drunk, Rodya loses all judgment and therefore goes and belittles Luzhin. Although Rodya’s intellectual mind had taken over and showed him that Luzhin wa... ... middle of paper ... ...to lose the will to live; hence Rodya was unable to take the sorrow anymore and murdered Alyona. After this interview, Rodya had his third dream where no matter what he did, he was not able to kill off Alyona, who was laughing hysterically at him. Through his inability to murder Alyona, he loses all of his intellect and becomes like a crazed beast in order to try and kill Alyona.
This leads Creon to get enraged at his son and his mind is still set on executing Antigone. Haimon responds by saying “Not here, no: She will not die here, King... ... middle of paper ... ...herself from suffering. However, this wasn’t the case with Creon because his entire family perished right before his eyes and he has no way to relief his pain. Thus, Creon is the tragic character of the play due to his everlasting grief caused by his flawed personality. In conclusion, Creon is the tragic character of Antigone because of his pride which caused him never ending agony by the end of this tragedy.
He does not make an effort to confirm the rumors Iago starts, and he fails to interpret Emilia’s own testament to Desdemona’s purity. It is indeed true that Othello’s intense love made the thought of cheating such a plague to his mental state, but even so, his suspicion could have been subsided by him personally making his own investigations. His failure to even discuss anything with his wife (rather, he refuses to tell her what she is being accused of because it “hurts” him too much to say) or listen to any information other than that which comes from the unreliable Iago does not justify his foolishness. A man who is tricked into committing a crime for the sake of supposed justice is still guilty. Othello’s realization of his sins, apology, and sacrifice that concludes the play is only a natural result and consequence of his actions.
